Is Wild Bill renewed for series 2? Fans want more Rob Lowe!

Wild Bill - ITV

Series 1 of ITV's Rob Lowe-starring Wild Bill has just come to an end but will we be getting a second series?

ITV's cop-themed comedy-drama Wild Bill came to an end on Wednesday, July 17th and fans have already been calling for the show to return for a second series.

The Lincolnshire-based series has won over fans for its gripping drama and gorgeous scenery which, unsurprisingly, heavily featured Lincoln's iconic cathedral. 

As soon as viewers heard that US TV superstar Rob Lowe would be appearing in the show, Wild Bill instantly drew the attention of Wednesday night audiences who have clearly been left impressed with what they've seen. 

But is Wild Bill due to return to our screens for a second series? 

What's Wild Bill about?

Wild Bill tells the story of Cheif Constable Bill Hixon, the newly appointed head of East Lincolnshire's Police Force. Upon arriving from the US with his teenage daughter, Bill is treated with resentment by some of his team as well as members of the criminal fraternity.

It is up to Bill and his unpopular, numbers-based methods to win over the unconvinced members of the police force and help put Lincolnshire's criminals behind bars.

Set to the stunning backdrop of Boston - the one in Lincolnshire, obviously - Wild Bill has captivated a regular audience in its Wednesday night slot, proving to be a real hit for ITV.   

Will it be back for series 2?

As things stand, there is no concrete news on whether Wild Bill will make a return to ITV for a second series.

However, due to the show's obvious and impressive popularity, it would be hard to see ITV turning down a chance to take us all back to Lincolnshire for a second series.

The first episode of Wild Bill picked up an impressive audience of 5.41 million viewers. If the first series as a whole managed to maintain that sort of figure throughout then it's almost certain that we'll be seeing Rob Lowe back on our screens before long.

Hopefully, it'll just be a matter of when, rather than if, until Wild Bill makes its way back to ITV. We'll be sure to keep you updated as soon as we hear any news regarding a second series of Wild Bill.

The DVD of Wild Bill's first series is set to release on July 29th, 2019 and will be a sure-fire hit for fans of the show who are eager for a second series.
